republicans disagree with. on israel this is something they honed in on. talked about israel trying to work out with his enemies calling the pro-israel lobby the jewish lobby. key republicans here on capitol hill say they will give him a fair hearing but they have tough questions for him to straighten this out. >> he's taken heat from the other side of the aisle. the democrats also critical of hagel. why is that? >> reporter: no question. ten democrats may vote against him based on what we hear right now. he's made controversial comments about gays. he said at one point that gays were not as effective in their work. it's something that he later apologized for. president obama just in the last week clarifying. he understands my position on this. and obviously he thought it was not as much of a hindrance as it could be because he's expected in the next several hours to nominate him as defense secretary. >> with the controversy, why is the president going with hagel at all? >> reporter: you know, a couple of things. first of all, remember, he sort of side-stepped that susan rice issue.

the foreign minister on this topic and i had to do with iran and the nuclear threat to israel. and the position germany was taking relative to them. and i was questioning where they might be should there be a real threat or attack in israel. he said of course you know that's not what the public would want us to do, but given the holocaust, we have to be very. we cannot stand by and let another holocaust take place. so those decades of remorse and guilt over the holocaust dictates policy relative to support for israel, even though the public now decades on says why do we need to do that again quiet and do we want to get mixed up and not? so that's kind of a unique dynamic that exists in that regard. but it's somewhat of a tenuous relationship. we spent a lot of time with the israeli ambassador, who spent a lot of time at the german relative to german policy towards israel in a home in her of ways. so anything short of a direct threat or attack on israel, we wish we could get this resolved and we wish israel would be much more flexible relative to the west bank and relative to the pa

secretary was asked to update the committee on the arms export policy with syria and israel and the implications of the embargo on u.k. policy. this is about one hour 10 minutes. >> foreign secretary, may we welcome you to export controls once again. foreign secretary, i am going to start with a question on the foreign arms aid treaty which i gave advance notice in the debate last week. in the debate, i stated the principle of consensus while maybe helpful in getting negotiations under way, that does not always proved to be the case. the principle consensus is not getting talks under way at all. in the context of the arms trade treaty, the history of consensus is that it is the kiss of death if one is trying to reach an agreement on a big multilateral, multi national agreement. we would not have the land mines convention, we would not have the class of ammunitions convention and so on. the question i would like to put to you is this. if the march negotiations failed -- if they fail and you told us they would be governed by the consensus principle, what the british government be will

case of hagel many in his own party think he's too liberal and his stance on israel are not in accord with the rest of the party. so there is some concern that maybe he may be too controversial a pick. if hi to bet, i think he probably will be confirmed. obviously the other big name is john kerry being nominated for secretary of state replacing hillary clinton and the speculation is that he will sail through and there won't be too much trouble with that nomination. >> now, how quickly can we expect these confirmations? >> you know, there's no telling how quickly some of these will go especially in the case of hagel. there may be debate. i think in the case of kerry it will be very quickly. if i had to bet, probably much of the debate over hagel will take place in the press before the vote. they'll probably do that pretty quickly. you don't want to have doubt about the secretary of defense for too awful long. >> let's talk a little bit about the cost of the inauguration. in 2008, it cost $170 million. this one the price tag not known at this point. regardless, getting a little bit of h
